    I had glimpsed the Cantona ad on FFWD but finally saw it last night, little did I know it was for Cashley and Sports Direct

    Also, doesn't it involve a little bit more than surface knowledge about yodelling?

    Whoever created that Domino’s yodelling ad campaign may have to be shot dead.

    OK. So, ex-Blossom, and "whatever the fck the comedy with science" was, she's gone full-on vitamins endorsing.

    She can now, officially, go fuck herself. Probably.

    I swear to dog, the next time I hear the phrase "let it rain", and it involves money, I am going to go postal.

    Lenor - "Where's The Sun?"

    Right up where it don't shine if you don't shut the fuck up with your caterwauling.

    Who, when deciding which celebrity to use to flog their TVs, thinks "Jimmy Bullard is your only man "

    I struggle to see Proust being a Redditor

    Must be a failure of imagination

    All these places carry with them that weird, artificial-bread smell.

    From recollection, Wimpy's in Canterbury always used to smell of cigarettes, canned chicken soup and damp overcoats.

    This slightly diminishes my regard for Megan Rapinoe rather than making me more likely to hold my nose and go into a Subway. I mean hold my nose literally; their shops smell like vomit.

    Judging by what I recall of our local Subway's hygiene standards, it's somewhat debatable how much better that'd be for anyone regardless.

    There is currently a Subway ad running all over the chuffing place, here. It features Megan Rapinoe (famed US soccer player) kicking a ball and knocking out burgers and things from people's hands, and saying "Why not have a freshly-made, Subway foot-long instead?"

    It's fucking annoying, because she is being really fucking smug. "Yeah, Megan, the reason I'm eating this burger, is "fuck off you nosey git", that's why."

    ...with the possible exception of this from over fifty years ago - which is great.

    The San Miguel advert saying "Find your rich" is just crap.

    Adverts that pretend to be cutting through all that pretentious advertising nonsense are always grating, even before adding Vinnie to the mix.

    I don't wear fragrances but the idea of anyone buying and using Brut in this day and age does seem implausible. The cheap smells in my local pharmacy mostly seem to be David Beckham, Beyonce and other celeb lines.

    Suspension of disbelief.

    The main 'disbelief' being that anyone, let alone Vinnie Jones, still uses Brut.

    The group's CEO is now an Istanbul-born Austrian who was trained in the US and UK and used to be at Proctor and Gamble.

    It is what they do

    Gah, marketing people. Aperol has, through the vagaries of fashion and taste, become the popular drink. So of course their marketing department decides to spend money on a TV and campaign.

    Why? Is it just so they can say they've done something.

    Why would Harry Redknapp think Michael Owen would be a good tipster? Why does Owen call Redknapp gaffer? Why would you contradict the guy you just said knows what's what?

    We had two Philip Schofield pitches in one break on London Live just now, the car selling website and something I hadn't seen before for a gin subscription service. Both make big assumptions about how engaged viewers are with his onscreen persona.

    Did I just see a Walkers' advert without Gary Lineker in it?

    There's an advert running on daytime TV for Parsleybox , a ready to eat meal delivery company. In it an elderly lady is preparing her Parsleybox meals for a date. Thing is, her prospective partner looks like old Biff Tannen from Back to the Future 2. I'm surprised he isn't hitting her on the head with his cane, and calling her Butthead!
